Have your say on proposed location changes to Leeds Community Healthcare services

The deadline to have your say on Leeds Community Healthcare’s service change proposals is fast approaching. We really want to hear from as many people as possible to find out what they think about the proposals.

These include our overall approach to the location of our services, and specific proposals about:

Adult Dietetics

Propose to reduce where clinics are provided, from 30 locations to 15 locations across Leeds.

Cardiac Rehab

Propose to reduce where clinics are provided, from 6 leisure centres to 4 leisure centres.

Children’s Newborn Hearing

Podiatry

Propose Adult Dietetics, Cardiac, Children’s SLT, MSK, Podiatry, Weight Management and IAPT to stop providing appointments in Garforth Clinic on Lidgett Lane (next to police station) and close the building.

To help us identify if our plans will achieve what we need them to do, and how we can best implement any changes to minimise the impact on anyone affected, we want to work with you – our patients, carers, public members, partners and stakeholders. Information, updates and feedback is available on our webpage

To have your say on the proposals please find copies of our surveys in your local health centre, or fill out the online version by no later than Thursday 5 November 2015.

We want to gather the views of as many people as possible who are interested in these changes, so do please forward the information onto family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. If you are part of a group who would like an opportunity to talk about this face-to-face, or if you have questions or comments about the engagement process itself, please contact the Membership and Involvement Team on 0113 2208551.
